UltraKey Lite
Video Matrix Keyboard


Honeywell’s UltraKey Lite keyboard is an industry-leading design for reliable, userfriendly control of video management systems. It works on both the MAXPRO-Net and VideoBloX Matrix controllers to provide a uniform user interface regardless of system controller.

The UltraKey Lite incorporates a touch wheel for rapid camera selections and digital or networked video recorder control, and a touch ring with four keys for various functions. Dedicated DVR/NVR buttons are programmable for device control. Laser cut keys with blue backlight provide a fade free, familiar QWERTY keyboard feel, and the rubber wrist pad is user replaceable.

Multiple control interfaces include TCP/IP, RS232, RS422 and RS485 through convenient RJ45 connector. A breakout box is available to convert to screw terminal or DB9 for RS232, and a USB port is also available for future connection options. The DC power supply connector uses a unique twist-lock mechanism to prevent accidental unplugging. Power over Ethernet (PoE) option is also available.

The UltraKey Lite has its own web browser for simple configuration and firmware upgrades. The UltraKey Lite has a two-line LCD that offers system feedback and simple keyboard configuration, and a 3-axis variable speed joystick with twist zoom controls variable speed PTZ mechanisms. The addition of focus controls on the left and right of the joystick allows either left or right-handed persons to use the controller effortlessly.

In VideoBloX mode, 20 function keys are available for sequence triggering or groups and scenes. In addition, the Mon A, Mon B, Tour and MUX keys trigger specific sequences in the VideoBloX CPU.

In MAXPRO-Net mode, standard keys such as PTZ call, alternate camera selection, sequence selection, tours, mux selection and NVR control functions are present. Through MAXPRO-Net Setmax, each key can be intercepted and the desired function programmed using macros.

Market Opportunities
For both MAXPRO-Net and VideoBloX CPU matrix options, the UltraKey Lite provides a real-time intuitive method of control for small to large matrix opportunities. The UltraKey Lite is a mid-tier keyboard option for MAXPRO-Net systems with added advantages of TCP/IP connectivity and the option to use RS422 for remote applications. This eliminates the need for external RS422 adapters, especially when used in conjunction with the MegaPIT™.

The UltraKey Lite is a direct replacement to the HEGS5BLX or PCK variants for the VideoBloX and VideoBloX Lite CPUs. With the VideoBloX NetCPU, the TCP/IP option offers connectivity over a LAN.
